9:30 a.m. - Meet at Del Mar Gold Line Station, 230 S. Raymond St, Pasadena.
Park in the parking structure on Raymond. The rate is $2 a day for Gold Line Patrons (with proof of ridership). Gold Line tickets are $1.25 per ride, or $5.00 for a day pass. There is also a discounted rate for seniors. There is a nice breakfast place at this location - La Grande Orange which starts serving breakfast at 7:00 am. The latest train I'd like to catch is the 10:03 train, but hopefully we can all gather and get our tickets and be ready to board one of the earlier trains, so we can meet up with other SCHSG members at Union Station.
10:00 a.m. - Meeting time at Union Station for SCHSG members who want to meet us.
If the Pasadena Gold Line passengers catch the later train, we'll be there around 10:20, but please plan on us arriving earlier. Plan on meeting in the main hall of Union Station. Keep your eyes open for haiku opportunities.
10:30 a.m. - Walk to Olvera Street. Pay attention to the sounds, the smells, in addition to what you see.
11:30 a.m. - Meet in Circular Plaza for Olvera Street Haiku sharing.
Walk down Main Street, over the 101 freeway, past City Hall, then left on 1st Street to Little Tokyo.

12:00 Noon- No-host Lunch in Little Tokyo
Walk around Little Tokyo, with more haiku sharing in the plaza by the JACC.

1:30 p.m. -2:00 p.m. - Catch Gold Line at Little Tokyo/Arts District to return.
